Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2009-11-30 02:47:35 EST
Yes, upstream has been notified about the problems in the supplied desktop file and it has been fixed for the upstream release. It is not just the missing semi colons. I have provided my own as a temporary workaround

update-desktop-database has been added.

Why not use a quick sed fix as described in

I prefer not using sed since the file can change upstream without me noticing with undesirable side effects. Anyway, it is temporary workaround since upstream is releasing a new version soon.
